Description

The CME accredited course "Longevity Through Fasting and Nutrition"  guides the attendee through a collection of educational videos based on the science behind dietary interventions, including fasting and the clinical results shown to induce benefits for overall longevity as well as in disease progression.

The course will provide a detailed overview of how nutrition and fasting affect longevity and disease, and the key molecular mechanisms involved.

The course will be focused on fasting and nutrition and will be an in-depth follow-up of the first course, “Nutrition, Fasting, Longevity and Disease”, during which participants will analyze how nutrition and genes are modulated by nutrients and how this affects aging and lifespan in simple organisms as well as in human beings. The course will introduce the biology of aging, as well as the mechanisms for the extension of the healthy life span and the prevention of age-related diseases.

Target Audience

The Longevity Through Fasting and Nutrition course is founded on the evidence-based science behind dietary interventions, including fasting and its clinical applications, which have been shown to induce benefits for overall longevity, and for various disease states.  

This course is dedicated to physicians, biologist, pharmacists, nutritionists, and other healthcare professionals, seeking clinical information and cases about aging, age-related diseases, nutrition, and fasting mimicking diets. AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ serve to maintain, develop, increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performances.  Non-healthcare professionals enthusiastic about the topic may also register and take the course.

“I REALLY LOVED LEARNING EVERYTHING AND I'M STILL going to go back on my modules to watch and rewatch and read again and again everything. I want to be specialized in longevity nutrition and with the fasting mimicking diet. I want to create links between my patients, doctors and my self in order to provide the best service to help people to live better and longer lives. I'm starting already to gives advices to a young girl who wants to lose weight. It's been 3 months we balanced her diet and now she is gonna eat longevity nutrition for one week before doing her first FMD. I want to take care of 50 to 100 patients this year and I want to keep all my datas for the foundation too in order to help you. I will do the others training that you are offering on your website. I feel very passionate about all this. Thank you so much. Longevity nutrition and FMD are part of the future cares and we are going to improve it so much I'm sure about it.”

“I attended the Longevity Through Fasting and Nutrition course and I feel I really learnt a lot of information about fasting and the longevity diet, I learnt to distinguish all the fasting models, the importance of following a diet that actually provides health benefits, I understand the mission of longevity studies. Now I think I would be able to recommend them to patients, each with their own facets. Every concept was clearly expressed and I am glad I listened to it. ”
